Jean-Luc Le Mounier’s Empreinte Console features a top finished with panels of satiny, incised ebony arranged in a geometric, mosaic pattern. The oak interior of the drawers are finished using the shou-sugi-ban method, an ancient Japanese technique that preserves wood by charring it with fire. In addition to being aesthetically striking and elegant, the technique strengthens the integrity of the oak. The charred surface of the interior in turn inspired the character of the cast bronze legs. Le Mounier is a French cabinet maker who lives and works in Brittany.
